Description Dirk Traenapp 2001-02-13 16:25:31 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [de] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.0 i686)

Install of fisher an AMD-TB1100, AsusA7V, Adaptec2940UW, IDE-ZIP250,
SCSI-CD/CDRW/Streamer crashes after starting X. Anaconda reports:
/bin/anaconda in ?
line 500
  extraModules=extraModules, pcicControler=pcicControler

/usr/lib/anaconda  line 592 in setFdDevice
   if not floppyDrive: return

NameError:  floppyDrive

Because of installation on a similar mashine without ZIP-Drive worked, i
think this crash was caused from my ZIP.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot from CD
2.Choose any of the installmodes
3.wait for the crash :-)
